"Once again, Beckett offers a potent work that engages the heart, delights the mind, and touches the deep spiritual core. True inspiration, as young Finnegan learns, resides in such profound communion." -Dr. Ronald O'Gorman, PhD
"Beckett has written an old-school adventure, with shootouts, narrow escapes, gallant heroes and dastardly villains... a book about real people who, for love,protect and defend their fellows. It celebrates brave men and women who loved freedom, who cherished the American Idea. How can we measure love, but that we risk all for it?" -Brandon Valley Journal
"Billy Finnegan is my hero!" -Lt. General Tex Brown, USAF
From the Back Cover
"A man of uncommon character... An abolitionist from his youth, and though the freedom movement numbered amongst its supporters great poets, sages, and statesmen, it had no more faithful worker in its ranks."
"A hero in a life-time fight, an upright, honest man, a tender husband, a loving father... a man who loved his neighbor as himself, who never let fear of harm sway him from doing his whole duty to the utmost."
"Certainly, this was a righteous man."

Within 300 pages of gripping adventure, the novel conveys its Anti-Racist, Pro-Immigration stance. Traditionalists may enjoy detailed hunting and fishing paragraphs. Progressives might prefer sections praising abolitionism and references to the glorious Seneca Falls Convention. There’s an obligatory meet-cute romance, but no uncomfortable sex scenes. I smiled at the mythological allusions and I enjoyed learning of the Africa Squadron’s many accomplishments.
Recommended for: fans of well-researched historical fiction
Not recommended for: strict vegetarians.
Final Rating? 88/100. Call it 4.5 stars.
This was a delightful book and I learned a lot more about America’s history. Definitely pick up a copy!
It was a clever mix of historical fiction with a warm coming of age component. The characters were well-developed and as a reader, I was rooting for the characters to succeed. A particularly interesting part of the story was when the lead character William feels conflicted between his deep-seeded political views and those of his father. Many of us have struggled with this on some level and the dialogue in the book regarding this issue rang true.
The author David Beckett did a great job in the background research for the novel. There are many details about landmarks, geography, and historical icons that were well-researched and nicely integrated into the story line.
I enjoyed the novel and look forward to Beckett's next book.
